Recently bought a second hand 147 (production date 2002). I am really pleased generally, but have a problem with noise from the catalytic converter. I am told it needs replacing. Has anyone else experienced this problem with 147 or 156. Seems a short lifetime for this part. I have just over 100,000 km on the clock.

Thanks for showing interest. A friendly mechanic checked for an original replacement (very expensive in DK) and was told that this was not uncommon for 147's and 156's. I managed to find a not original part at half the price, but when we came to change, it turned out to only have a single cat, mine has a double cat; this is not available here in DK.
